Building A Team With Weird Powers – Preview Secret Weapons #3 From Valiant

by Hannah Means Shannon

This week, the critical and fan hit Secret Weapons returns from Valiant for its third issue, following the lives of a group of powered young people whose powers are less than impressive–at least to Toyo Harada–who wants them eliminated.

Livewire is out to keep them alive, and teach them to work together for their own survival. Written by Eric Heisserer (who wrote the Oscar-nominated film Arrival and is the writer on some of Valiant’s upcoming films), and illustrated in a beautiful and fresh style by Raul Allen and Patricia Martin, Secret Weapons has a lot of heart and plenty of action, too.

In this week’s issue, class is in session, and Amanda McKee–the machine-wielding hero codenamed Livewire–is here to show her unconventional class of recruits what it really takes to master power. And lesson number-one is…teamwork! But as these once-abandoned psiot castaways put their pain behind them to become a fully functioning unit, an even deadlier set of challenges will soon rise to meet them…

Here’s our look at the interior art on this third issue:
